Leg Go Already

SosfdavidO here and wow, did today’s artist ever not draw a human being doing a flip properly in in today’s strip! What the heck happened in P2? It looks like she just took a headshot in a Tarantino movie. Not to mention her leg and foot does not even remotely resemble a human leg or foot.

This is “Worst of Rob Leifeld” level stuff here.

    “Tough-looking”? Does he mean they were particularly “butch”, in tremendous physical condition or that they were just butt-ugly? It’s not really clear, but fortunately it doesn’t matter anyhow, as the strip is a total throwaway piece of garbage no one will ever read again.

    And who is he talking to? Who says “and I will say this” when they’re talking to themselves? He’s doing a monologue for himself here. Again, who the hell remembers a rival high school in this kind of detail? He played four football games there at most, forty (or fifty) years ago no less.

      I thought the Majorettes were the tough ones after surviving all those flaming baton burns.

      Once again, he just makes it up as he goes.

    Anonymous BWT, man, if you’re gonna make fun of the cheerleaders’ looks, at least try to incorporate a joke.

    Y’know what they say when the Westview cheerleaders take the field… “how ’bout them ‘Goats?!”

    There, you can have that one. It’s old as dirt and incredibly tacky, so it isn’t totally out of place in this strip.

      Yes Tom, the entire comic strip industry shifted on its axis when Lisa got pregnant. Suddenly gags about dorks who couldn’t kick footballs or climb gym ropes were out and stories about teen pregnancy, drowning dogs and cancer were in. Glorious times to be alive.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Well Tom doesn’t put any quality into his work, so why should the syndicate do anything?

      They, like him, are just running out the clock, doing the bare minimum and collecting a check.

      Yes, after Lisa got pregnant I realized I could never do anything wacky ever again. Like a double wedding officiated by a man in a rubber alien costume.

      • Doug Puthoff

        Not to mention having the winning touchdown of a football game scored by a kid in a goat costume.

        It’s still so unbearably obnoxious, like those old gags were just childish garbage next to the “stories” he started churning out. He never mentions how those stories are all just premises that never go anywhere and are more predictable than any of his old gags were. Like that teen pregnancy arc he still hoots and gloats about, it was painfully obvious from the first panel that a) Les wasn’t the father and b) she’d give up the baby for adoption, as it was the course of action that would offend the fewest readers. Lamaze classes, going into labor, “what people would say”, it was more predictable and by the numbers than a tide chart.

    The “art” today looks very pre-Burchett.

    This just got very creepy. Someone needs to ask this perv to leave.

  7. I’m completely baffled by this one. I can’t discern any attempt at humor or pathos or anything at all.
    I guess it’s just another “bye” strip on the way to the 50th.

    I know that all the perverts here are mentally changing the last word of the strip.

    Batiuk isn’t going for funny? Then he has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.

  10. All this so that he can nurse his grudge against the cheerleaders who didn’t flock to the skeevy yoik standing around bellowing about how the world was coming to an end because they changed the artist, writer and reason WHY Barry Allen violated the laws of physics and biology.

    Batty aims for “great suspense,” but hits “worn out, tired schtick.” I care less who this guy is each day. We get it. The very large, 50+ year old adult still wearing his high school jacket is supposed to surprise us sometime in November when BatHack shows who he is.

    We’re pretty sure he’s here to replace Bullsquat, whose brains are now a tasty combination of applesauce and raisins. But if that were the case, why is he sitting in the bleachers?? Why wasn’t he hired months age, before the school year and football season started??

    And after you answer that, tell me why a summer movie blockbuster premiers right before Labor Day, in a dilapidated old small town theater, with about a week’s notice. (Hint: Same reason “superstar” high school girls ladies women’s basketball stars haven’t picked a college a month before high school graduation.)

    Batty’s War on Timelines rages on!

    I’m real confused about the alleged punchline in today’s strip. What’s the cheerleaders’ motivation for sitting on the bench with the opposing team? Is it because the home team is a bunch of losers? Is it because the “tough looking” cheerleaders are ready to suit up and play for the opposing team? Is it because they were all promiscuous and were ready to go down on any male athlete? I can not come up with any interpretation of panel three that is the least bit funny.

    • Epicus Doomus

      Me either. I guess the “joke” is that the Scapegoats sucked so much that the cheerleaders didn’t want to be seen with them, although that interpretation does nothing to explain the “tough looking” comment.

      “WHS sure had some tough looking cheerleaders. We used to say we were glad we weren’t playing THEM”…it’s bad but it’s a joke at least. This is just the rambling of a confused madman.

  13. Spacemanspiff85

    “Not going for funny” is totally fine, as long as you’re actually going for something.

    I thought BWT was literally the only other school in Westview’s conference? They play home and away games, they meet once in the state playoffs, and if Westview wins that they meet again in the state title game?

    I’ve never seen Westview play anyone else, ever…

  15. hitorque

    1. Seriously, can someone arrest this pederast already? Those cheerleaders look like middle school JV…

    2. It’s really strange that Mr. BWT with his custom-made all-leather letterman jacket chose to sit on the Westview side instead of the visitor section (god forbid he run into a bunch of mopey, peaked-in-high-school teammates to commiserate with… They might elevate his mood and we can’t have that!).

    3. It’s really strange that Mr. BWT with his custom-made all-leather letterman jacket recalls nothing specific about *HIS* goddamned school or feats he pulled off as a player or victory parties or fingering drunken cheerleaders or whatever… Why does some limp-dick opponent from way back that he almost certainly never lost to in his school years get to dominate all his ruminations?

    4. Maybe there’s an angle here we’re missing and the “T” stands for “Trump”, which would explain quite a bit…

    Really why is he remembering all this and why in god’s name is it important to him?
